Online Workshop - Civic Dilemmas: Religion, Migration, and Belonging

Educators are invited to join this free online workshop designed to introduce new materials exploring migration and identity, hosted by "Facing History and Ourselves." The free workshop is from 03/26/2009 - 04/08/2009. Through facilitated online activities and conversations, the workshop will consider how schools negotiate both the needs of diverse student populations and the national need to form community cohesion. To explore these ideas Facing History and Ourselves developed two new publications -- Stories of Identity: Religion, Migration, and Belonging and What do we do with a Difference: France and the Debate Over Headscarves in Schools. Both are available free on their Web site. Pre-registration is required, on their site.

  1. I signed up and the workshop is going on now. I read both books and there are many interesting points to ponder.
    Work well done, and opening up thinking about todays societies in an updated fashion.
    It might be good to have a small group here in San Antonio to study with, take this material and use it in offerings at schools and churches, in interfaith dialogues.
